WIZARDS

19 Jared Cunningham, G, Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)

50 Ike Diogu, F, Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)

64 Jasonn Hannibal, C, Victoria Roadrunners (2015-16, Mexico)

4 Danuel House, F, Washington Wizards

30 Kris Jenkins, F, Villanova

15 Marcus Keene, G, Central Michigan

9 Sheldon Mac, G, Washington Wizards

1 Chris McCullough, F, Washington Wizards

32 Daniel Ochefu, C, Washington Wizards

8 Kevin Pangos, G, Zalgiris Kuaunus (Lithuania)

81 Jaleel Roberts, C, Salt Lake City Stars (G-League)

40 Devin Robinson, F, Florida

21 Jalen Ross, G, Hartford

24 Rayshawn Simmons, G, BK Prostejov (Czech Republic)

18 Maalik Wayns, G, Maccabi Rishon LeZion (Israel)

34 Michael Young, F, Pittsburgh

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Cunningham continues to be the Wizards' best scorer, though Mac has shown some flashes. Watch out for Young, who so far has shot just 27.5 percent through two games but is someone the Wizards will likely continue giving heavy minutes to. He signed their first two-way contract, so the team is invested in his future. McCullough has been slow to get going offensively, but is leading the team with 8.0 rebounds per game.

BULLS

15 Ryan Arcidiacono, G, Villanova

9 Antonio Blakeney, G, LSU

35 Amida Brimah, C, UConn.

32 Kris Dunn, G, Providence

7 Brady Heslip, G, Baylor

52 Nikola Jovanovic, C, USC

24 Lauri Markkanen, F, Arizona

22 Cameron Payne, G, Murray State

20 Dejan Todorovic, F, Spain

45 Denzel Valentine, G, Michigan State

25 Chris Walker, F, Florida

16 Paul Zipser, F, Germany

PLAYERS TO WATCH: As far as Summer League rosters go, the Bulls are pretty loaded. They have Markkanen, this year's seventh overall pick, plus Dunn who was last year's fifth pick. Both were acquired in the Jimmy Butler deal. Arcidiacono was teammates with both Ochefu and Jenkins of the Wizards in college at Villanova. And Valentine was pretty good as a rookie last season after going in the first round of the 2016 draft.

NBA Power Rankings 2017-18: Celtics still won't lose, Wizards rise

The Celtics passed their toughest test yet with a win over the Warriors. 

The league's leading defense held the defending champion Warriors to a season-low 88 points Thursday night to keep its winning streak alive, and added their 15th straight win Saturday against the Hawks.

Spoiler alert: there's obviously no way you can move them from the top spot after doing all that.

The Sixers and Knicks are actually above .500, and see themselves rising, while teams like the Clippers and Thunder can't seem to put a consistent stretch together. 

Heck, the Clippers would be happy for a win at this point. 

The Magic also seem to be leveling out after a strong start to the season.

Wizards at Bucks: TV, live stream and radio info, things to watch

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and the Washington Wizards battle Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton and the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

Here is all you need to know: TV, live stream and radio info, tip-off time, plus three things to watch…

WASHINGTON WIZARDS AT MILWAUKEE BUCKS

Three things to watch...

Can Wall play?

The Wizards were without star point guard on Sunday night, as John Wall sat out due to a swollen left knee. The Wizards lost and it was in large part due to their lack of offense. They scored only 91 points, their second-lowest output of the season so far. With a healthy Wall, maybe that doesn't happen.

Head coach Scott Brooks told reporters in Toronto that Wall could miss Monday's game as well. But by tipoff Wall will have had two full days off following his last game, on Friday against the Heat. The Bucks, though, present a unique challenge with a deep backcourt featuring Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton and others. This is also the second game of a back-to-back for the Wizards. They were 7-9 in games with zero days rest last year.

Recent history

The Wizards won three of their four matchups against the Bucks last season and have taken 14 of their last 19 meetings going back to 2012. Washington has absolutely owned the Bucks and that hasn't changed even in recent years with the emergence of Giannis Antetokounmpo as a superstar. The Bucks, though, are a different team with Bledsoe so there is no guarantee the recent success continues.

One thing to keep in mind is that these teams had a bit of bad blood last year. The Bucks' lone win against the Wizards was on Dec. 23 in Milwaukee. The Bucks won in a blowout and Antetokounmpo remained in late in the game to chase a career-high in points. The Wizards didn't like that and after beating them in a rematch on Dec. 26 several players including Wall said publicly they thought it was disrespectful.

Bucks are on the rise

Speaking of Antetokounmpo, the guy just keeps getting better. This year he's averaging a ridiculous line of 30.1 points, 10.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.7 steals. He is shooting a cool 56.3 percent and so far looks like a legitimate MVP candidate.

Antetokounmpo has some help, too. Middleton is averaging 18.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.2 steals. Brogdon, the reigning rookie of the year, is averaging 14.1 points and 3.8 assists. There is also Bledsoe, who hasn't quite broken out yet since joining the Bucks in a trade.
